Sewing and Pocket Letters...
Hello November. You are beginning the month in a most productive manner. Thank You.
I thought I was done sewing Dresses for Girls Around the World...until my local ladies invited me to join them. I have just completed six dresses and here they are shown on the sewing room love seat. I was able to unpack enough of my sewing supplies and machine in order to sew these. Now I have renewed zest and will continue to sew.
Yesterday, today and the rest of this week I decided to make a mess on my studio work table which is 4' x 9' and such a joy to work on. It is high enough that I don't have to lean over and kill my back. This is also where I do all my sewing fabric cutting. With the holidays coming all too quickly, I decided I better get busy. I gathered supplies and got to work...actually this is pleasure for me.
I am creating some Pocket Letters for Christmas mailings. Due to the cost of postage, I am keeping them very simple. Just a few stickers and some chocolate and a little surprise charm.
I decided to use one of my many 2018 calendars I buy from multiple charity organizations. This little fox just melts my heart. I will have lots of variety when I am finished. The post office is already getting busy. We have November birthdays to celebrate. My Granddaughter Amy and Mr. C's Sister along with some friends. Happy Birthday to each of you.
We are getting rain and the Fall leaves are blanketing the ground. Winter is near and I feel the chill in the air. I shall try my very best to Embrace Winter this year...as it is not my favorite season.
November Blessings and Happy Thanksgiving to those in our United States of America. Bliss and JOY...
